Pursuing truth and not traditions...
“Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” –1 Timothy 4:16
It has to be one of zero:1) A bad hair day2) Childhood memories of getting demoralized by television.3) Cluelessness4) Writing meliorism on the back of my hand and giving it (slapping) whoever asks!have a great week
The art of finding obscure words in theological dictionaries for the purpose of impressing those who do not possess such books? You know, that could sound mean. Julianne, tell people I'm not being mean.
Frank,Maybe, number 2)?Brian,That is an art I'm working on. And, yes, you're being mean. People, Brian's being mean.;)
Brian is one lean mean theological machine. meliorism- eating melons and lieing about it to your motherI heard R.C Sproul, Dicussing the 18th centry as being the least violent of all of History recorded along with the first centry. The thought of meliorism was socialy being very optimisticaly taught in much of the philosophy of that day. Men like Jonathan Swift made pragmantistism very popular. Even most views of esclatology took meliorism serious.Are those some good hints? I don't want to serve it to ya, on a platter! Am I using it in it's proper context Julianne? By the way R.C.Sproul tapes on an over view on philosophy is FANTASTIC. Plus, it can make you look smart when your not ,like me.I am Not, saying you don't look smart, but I don't know about Brian.
Brian scares me :(And have you seen R.C. Sprouls ESV study bible yet?Me wants it!Cheers
Frank, Is it my picture that scares you? I have to say, your picture is very nice. Am I less scary now?Julianne, If I really wanted to be mean I'd tell everyone that you're really in your 80's and have been passing yourself off as young and energetic with your great great granddaughter's picture. But since I'm not mean (only a sarcastic jerk) I won't tell anyone.
That hurts, Brian. Now everyone knows...
OK, Everyone It's alright! everyone ignore me. I must be invisible.Meliorism is not true in my life.I am just going to have a pity party of my own. Maybe it's because;I know the answer. So there! Ha...Ha..Ha...!Meliorism-is the belief that society is getting better. We are on are way to utopia.Base on that man is basicaly good. Hince,the reason; for all that I wrote in the other post above.Alright, What do I win!
Daniel,You are but a wee bit off. So close, but no cigar. You're just missing the major point of meliorism. It's okay though, because now I'm acknowledging your post. ;)
Dan,You know, if you really want to get this right, I have a book to sell you.
Always trying to get in that one last sale, aren't you, Brian?I think it's out of print, too bad for you, Daniel.
Julianne, You seem to enjoy having an advantage.
Meliorism: A debilitating tendancy to turn any potentially delicious culinary creation into a mealy, boring, uniform-in-color-but-not-in-consistency, scientific curiosity."I'm terribly sorry about the meatloaf; if it weren't for my blasted case of meliorism, it would've been much tastier. Are you turning green?"
